Lark Seeks Development Apprentice for 2014-15 Season
The Lark is beginning our second year of a season-long (September-July) apprentice program for emerging arts administrators. We are currently seeking a reliable, enthusiastic, hardworking aspiring arts professional for a residency at the Lark. The apprenticeships are designed to serve as a bridge between an educational setting and the professional world by providing firsthand experience in the Lark process, training and experience in arts administration, a greater knowledge of the inner workings of an arts organization and exposure to models of positive, collaborative professionals.
Apprentices will join Lark’s tightknit (9 full-time, 4 part-time employees) in pursuit of creating a collaborative, safe, and well-resourced environment for nurturing playwrights and plays. Each apprentice will join a particular department and be given significant and specific responsibilities within that department. Available position is in Development and Fundraising. Each apprentice is paired with a supervisor that makes sure the experience is educational and meaningful for both parties. Apprentices are expected to participate in as many Lark events as possible, to get to know the Lark community and to take advantage of the theatre's offerings both within and outside of their department.
Apprentices are expected to work 30 hours per week and commit to a regular schedule during business hours of Monday-Friday 10am-6pm (with some evening commitments)
Apprentices should be able to commit to working September 8, 2014 – July 3, 2015. Because of the last minute posting we will accept applicants who need to start later than September 8.
While apprentices must provide for his or her living, housing and transportation expenses they will be paid stipends of $600 per month to help offset those costs.
